Pioneer Data Systems offers a range
of classes designed to fit your needs. Greg Kreis will instruct and encourage your trainees with his unique style of teaching at your facility (minimum class sizes apply).
Here is the current schedule of classes.
Unless otherwise noted, when an on-site class is hosted by the Department of Veterans Affairs, then it is restricted to employees of the DVA or other government agencies with a relationship with the DVA. Consultants contracted by the DVA are also approved for attendance.
What are your needs?
If you have trainees
and a classroom facility, you can host a training
class on your site. But what if you only have
a couple of trainees who need the class, or you
don't have the facility necessary to host an on-site
class? Chances are you can enroll your trainees
in a class at another facility that has open seats.
It's a good idea to join our mailing
list to receive announcements about seats
that are available.
you host an on-site class...
In order to ensure a quality training experience
for your students, your class facilities must
meet certain critiera. Check the course description
for specific facility requirements, but the general
requirements are as follows:
- Projector displaying instructor's computer on a screen.
- Paper Flip Chart
- A VistA training account, accessible from classroom PCs, where students can do exercises. This account must include recently patched Kernel, Fileman and VPE. To maximize the learning experience, it is highly recommended that VistA clinical applications also be installed in the account as a source of code examples.
- Each student should have their own PC/terminal and unique access and verify codes to the training account. Students must have access to programmer mode after logging in.
If an on-site class is not feasible...
In this era of mobility and the ubiquitous net, the possibility of delivering a class virtually is not only practical, it is a realisitic alternative to on-site training. How do we know? We have been doing it for several years and our student evaluations tell us the time is now for virtual. We have conducted classes virtually for decades, but only in the last few years has all of the technology matured sufficiently to make it a viable substitute for on-site classes.
Students can attend from their work place or from their home (whichever has the most consistent network performance). We provide the class materials and headset needed to attend the class using a PC or Mac. Our delivery platform even lets us create break out rooms for students to team up virtually to perform hands on exercises and share their screens for collaboration.
When budgets don't permit travel, or student time is tight, consider a virtual class!
Our class minimum is fifteen students. However,
if your class size falls below the enrollment minimum,
don't worry! We encourage you to open your class to
students from other facilities, which should help you
to meet or even exceed the minimum class enrollment.
